Game of Thrones Star Gwendoline Christie Slays in a Whole New Way in Vivienne Westwood's Fall Ads
No sword necessary.
On-screen, Gwendoline Christie slays — quite literally — as Game of Thrones‘ Brienne of Tarth, one of the baddest women in Westeros. But in real life, she’s giving the word an entirely different meaning as the new face of Vivienne Westwood’s fall 2015 campaign.
For the campaign ads, which were lensed by photographer Juergen Teller, the actress poses in a series of haunting portraits — modeling a mix of punky plaids and dramatic cat eyeliner, all the while proving her stare is just as piercing as Brienne’s sword.
“I love the unisex theme of this collection,” Christie said in a statement. “It is so relevant for Vivienne Westwood to reassert their activist mind-set and create a collection that takes us beyond our current gender stereotypes with beauty and intelligence.”
It’s not the first time Christie has teamed up with the designer. Back in March, she made a surprise appearance on the runway for the label’s fall 2015 Paris Fashion Week show. “She is such an attractive woman,” said Westwood. “When I asked her to be in the show, as well as the campaign, we got to know each other, she is a really interesting woman.”
Between that Christie the Friendly Fashion Ghost shot and that Edward Munster Couture look, we’re really hoping there are more sci-fi/supernatural thrillers in her future.
